Hi! I recently bought a new stagi haydn duet and when it was delivered everything was fine except one thing! The lowest C on the bass side is out of tune and rustling and wheezing a bit. I opened the concertina up to look at it and the reeds are attached to reed blocks but the space is really narrow so it seems hard to be able to tune one reed, and even hard to tune noth in and out. I could remove the reed block but its waxed/glued on, so it seems a bit much just to tune one set of reeds. Now, I am an accordion player and have some experience with tuning accordions so that part isn't the problem, the problem is getting to the reeds. Any ideas? Regards, Ernst Rolf
I am a retailer of the Stagi range of concertinas. In the past 6 months there have been big changes at Stagi, and the standard has improved beyond belief. They now produce a good standard beginners to intermediate quality concertina, English, Anglo and duet. The action is quicker, the tuning is exceptional and the finish is wonderful. Not everyone can afford a high quality Antique concertina or a Norman or Morse, so the Stagi range is essential to encourage people to start to learn this wonderful instrument. I now that I will be lampooned and criticised for my opinion, but putting barriers in front of people who would love to try the concertina but can neither afford a top concertina or don’t want to part with a large sum early on Should be encouraged and not put down by the concertina purists.
